Liam Gallagher made his first appearance at the Isle Of Wight Festival tonight (June 12), playing with Beady Eye on the Main Stage of the bash before headliners Kasabian.

Oasis never played at the event but tonight the singer certainly took his chance to make an impression – choosing to wear a huge coat designed in the colours of the Union Jack flag, surely one of the most colourful images of the weekend so far.

The rain was tipping down for the band's show – as it had been all day – with Liam drily acknowledging the sogginess of the fans. He introduced 'Kill For A Dream' as 'Kill For A Suntan' and reassured the crowd that they "still look pretty good, mate," despite their dampness.

Review: Beady Eye at Isle of Wight

His coat wasn't the only fashion statement he made during the set. He dedicated 'Man Of Misery' to "all you Pretty Greens" – a reference to his fashion label, Pretty Green.

As well as playing songs from their debut album 'Different Gear, Still Speeding', Beady Eye ended the set with their usual set closer, their cover of World Of Twist's 'Sons Of The Stage'.

Beady Eye played:

'Four Letter Word'
'Beatles And Stones'
'Millionaire'
'The Roller'
'Bring The Light'
'Standing On The Edge Of The Noise'
'Kill For A Dream'
'Three Ring Circus'
'The Beat Goes On'
'Man Of Misery'
'Morning Sun'
'Wigwam'
'Sons Of The Stage'
